Just a day after he gave a bizarre speech in which he compared himself to Nelson Mandela and assured his supporters that they would not have to vote in the 2024 presidential election because “we got a lot of votes,” Donald Trump became his latest speech Delivered plate of dessert – this one courtesy of Jenna Ellis. And Michael Cohen. And the list goes on).
“The Waffle House spokesman was in court today and oh MAN is he in trouble,” Jimmy Kimmel shared Tuesday night, before making a bold prediction: “I’m telling you right now, Donald Trump is going to jail!”
While Trump spent most of his Tuesday in a courtroom, seemingly seething as his former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen poured his heart out about his many alleged wrongdoings, pressure on the former president was also ratcheted up outside the courtroom.
“Alone today, [Trump’s] We have learned that former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows has immunity in the January 6 case. He will testify that he repeated “said Trump that the allegations of voter fraud were unfounded, which is the opposite of what Trump says,” Kimmel continued. (Although Meadows himself denies the rumors that he attacked his former boss.)
But that’s not the end of it for Trump.
“His former attorney, Jenna Ellis, pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting false statements in the Georgia election-rigging case and will likely testify against her former client,” Kimmel said. “And Trump’s former mastermind Michael Cohen testified against him today in the fraud trial in New York.” None of this sounds good for the Republican front-runner in the 2024 presidential election.
Kimmel summed it up when he half-jokingly declared, “Half of Trump’s lawyers are trying to keep him out of jail, the other half are trying to keep themselves out of jail.”
When Trump was previously asked to comment on Cohen’s about-face, he simply wrote him off as a proven liar – and Kimmel agreed. Cohen “is a liar,” the host said. “He has lied for You. He was your lawyer who mortgaged his own house to pay off the porn star you asked to spank your fat pink ass Forbes Magazine.”
